Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao


I loved this story.  It was everything I wanted it to be and then some more.  

Set in a world where women are only valued for what they can do and be for men.  Young women pair up with men to pilot war machines.  The women routinely giving their lives so the men can win glory.  Zetian has other ideas in mind when she volunteers for the program.

Loved the character of Zetian.  Though her plans start as a means of getting revenge, she soon learns that their is more, much more going on than lead to believe.  Working with the very men she sought revenge on, she gains strength and power far beyond what was ever envisioned.  Along with this power, comes responsibilities she hadn't expected.

This is  an the edge of the seat kind of tale.
